History of the Murphy Bed

The Murphy bed is named for William Lawrence Murphy (1876–1959). Murphy applied for his first patents for a fold away bed around 1900.

What inspired Murphy to design the bed? According to legend, he was wooing an opera singer, but living in a one-room apartment in San Francisco, and the moral code of the time frowned upon a woman entering a man’s bedroom.

So Murphy invented the fold out bed and converted his bedroom into a parlor, enabling him to entertain guests without breaking the moral code of the day.

Sears had introduced foldup beds through the Sears, Roebuck & Co. catalog, but Murphy introduced pivot and counterbalanced designs for which he received a series of patents, including one for a “Disappearing Bed”. Murphy’s design made the bed simple and safe to use.

Murphy beds are used for space-saving purposes, much like trundle beds, and are popular where floor space is limited, such as small homes, apartments, hotels, mobile homes and college dormitories. In recent years, these fold up beds have included options such as lighting, storage cabinets, and office components.

Murphy’s patent has since expired. In 1989, the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled that the term “Murphy Bed” had entered common usage and was no longer eligible for protection.

    This store is full of high quality and unique furniture that is completely customizable. My husband and I work with Agnes every time and she is always friendly, personable, hard-working, and very knowledgeable about every piece. She doesn’t stop until you’re satisfied.
    We only buy our furniture from here. So far we own a computer desk, dresser, storage bench, nightstand, kitchen table and chairs, kitchen storage cabinet, corner display case, full size Murphy bed…. As you can tell, almost everything! And we will continue to be loyal customers 🙂

    We recently purchased a Murphy Bed with Furniture in the Raw. We had an excellent experience. Deric designed a beautiful office to accommodate the bed. We selected a stain to compliment our wood floors. It was installed this weekend and we could not be happier with the final product. Deric was a pleasure to work with and the entire staff was friendly and well informed. We would certainly do business with them again.

    Customer service above and beyond–that is what you can expect if Derrick and Ramonz deliver and set up your purchase from Furniture in the Raw. They called ahead, arrived on time, and introduced themselves as they carefully protected our floor and walls. They competently installed our new Murphy bed. When an issue arose about installing the bookcases, they called their manager and came to an acceptable conclusion. These men were polite, cleaned up their mess, and thanked us for our business. Please recognize these two for the fine way that they represent Furniture in the Raw. We will return to make further purchases because of them and the helpful sales representatives.

    I purchased a floor model murphy bed and assembled it myself…I contacted Leo after having some problems and he didn’t hesitate to send Ray Simmons and Ford Grace to my home near San Antonio. Ray and Ford were professional, courteous, and very knowledgable about the bed. They identified and solved the problem quickly. They tested and retested the bed to ensure it worked properly. They not only showed me how the bed should work and explained the parts, but they allowed me to practice so I could see and understand exactly how my bed should work!

    Furniture in The Raw is an excellent example of Customer Service and Professionalism…

    I am so happy and grateful for their help and support.

    Thank you

    The day I closed on the property I ordered custom-made Murphy beds for the Hobby Room. I placed the order with Harriet Greenlee, owner of Furniture in The Raw. The beds arrived today and I am pee- in-my- pants excited! I can’t wait for my guests to see this beautiful piece of furniture. Richard and Fredo worked hard to move the thermostat and paint the walls to be ready for the installation. The installation was quick and they gave me a short tutorial on how to use the beds. EASY PEASY and even I can reach it.

    My story begins with a quick chat on their website with Curtis 2 months ago. Yesterday we had the pleasure of 2 of the most professional installers at our home installing our beautiful bed. Our finish was not available here and Curtis worked with my partner and I to get the exact color and they got it perfectly. We now have our office organized and ready to host guests this weekend for our daughter’s graduation. We are very happy!
